  1. Avoid using contractions in formal writing. A contraction is a combination of two words as one, such as "don't," "can't," and "isn't." The use of contractions is inappropriate in formal legal writing. Replace them with the two-word version of the contraction. (来源:英语学习门户网站EnglishCN.com)

  在正式写作中应避免使用缩写形式。 缩写即是将两个词合二为一,比如 "don't," "can't," 和"isn't"。在正式的法律文书中使用缩写形式是不规范的。 (来源:EnglishCN英语问答中心[e问e答])

  Correct: He can not guarantee that the defendant will appear because the defendant has not called him in several days. (来源:英语论坛 http://bbs.englishcn.com)

  2. Remember: "It's" is the contraction of "it is." The term "its" is the singular possessive of "it." The term "it's," by contrast, is the contraction of "it is."

  记住:“It's”是“it is”的缩写形式,而“its”是“it”的单数所有格形式。
